I fully endorse the use of protective gear when feasible. I was wearing other protective gear.A wonderful miracle your vision was saved.
I've taken to wearing protective glasses more often when doing almost anything where eye injury is possible. Scary stuff.
Glad for you!My eye is good as new as far as I can tell. My surgeon said half a millimeter deeper and I would have had a global rupture (collapsed eyeball) with questionable outcome. I attribute the quick healing process to the use of bromelain. The steroid eye drops they gave me served two purposes. They reduced inflammation and they slowed healing, which meant less scarring.
I'm glad I won't have to wear an eye patch for the rest of my life. Although, there's an undeniable cool factor to being a pirate. Pirates wore eye patches to preserve night vision in one eye before looking for treasure and sparely-clad damsels in dark cargo holds. Saber fighting with one eye was probably not a good idea.
